Tempe, AZ -- (SBWIRE) -- 03/07/2012 -- As most teachers know quite well, a career in education can be extremely fulfilling. Working each day instructing children and helping them learn is a satisfying experience for teachers, who go home at the end of their workday knowing they have truly made a difference in the lives of their students.
Many schools require that their teachers have a master in education. But for students who are just starting their college careers, knowing which type of advanced degree to earn and which school would be best can feel overwhelming. The large number of universities that now offers master of education programs ranges from top ranked public institutions to small private colleges. Other factors, such as admission requirements and cost can also be confusing for students to understand.
A website has been getting a lot of attention lately for its comprehensive and helpful information about how to go about earning a master in education.
Masters in Education Guides includes a wide variety of educational articles filled with tips and advice about programs, schools, majors, careers, and everything else that is related to the master of education degree. The website is easy to use and is a valuable online resource for not aspiring teachers but also those who already work in the field of education who wish to return to school to earn the advanced degree.
“Whether you are looking to change your career and become a teacher, or advance your career through specialization we have the information you need to obtain your masters in education and take the next step in your career,” an article on the website explained, adding that one of the first things students should do is select the focus or major for the master of education degree.
Across the top of the home page are helpful tabs that will help visitors to the site get to the information they need the most; categories include “Schools,” “Majors,” “Admissions,” and, a subject many students wonder about: “Tuition.”
“Grad school classes always cost more than undergraduate ones,” an article on the site noted, adding that students should expect to pay between $300 and $600 per credit hour.
“Many institutions that have gone fully online now offer the same credit hour price regardless of where the student lives. In other cases, there is still a hometown discount for in-state tuition.”
